About

Self-exploration continues throughout our lives. Our efforts to find peace and self-fulfillment can be accomplished through introspection and processing. I employ a variety of therapy modalities that assist with the exploration process in a manner that feels comfortable and safe, leading to those moments of understanding and acceptance. Art and EMDR Therapy combined can assist with reaching a deeper level of self-awareness in a non-threatening manner, and also allows for reprocessing recent and past traumatic experiences. With a willingness towards self-awareness, both modalities can be utilized to achieve ideal adjustment.
I offer a creative combination of Art and EMDR Therapy, in addition to traditional talk therapy. My over-arching approach is to bolster strengths and resources with a focus on increasing self-kindness and acceptance, decreasing self-criticism and blame. At times I provide take-home exercises and resources that can be utilized outside of session time.
Creative problem solving and self exploration, including becoming aware of and working through trauma, can assist in moving us forward in our lives, ultimately overcoming obstacles and towards desired outcomes. The work in therapy adds to the existing foundation in achieving your best self. My approach is client-centered. Available openings for new clients.
